What you’ll need to remove the stains:
Will this method cause the color to change on my shirt?
Anytime you use intense stain removal methods, there is a chance that you’ll lighten the color of the fabric or cause the appearance to change.
A good rule of thumb: If I’m already not going to wear the garment because of a stain, then I won’t be nervous if I ruin it in trying to get the stain out.
Can I use a detergent other than Tide?
Should I dry the shirt in the dryer after going through this stain removal process?
Don’t dry your shirt in the dryer until you are totally satisfied with the stain removal.
Dryer heat always sets in stains.
Hang your shirt to dry and examine it in bright light to determine if the stain removal meets your approval.
